Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The exhibit will be visually stimulating and will provide the viewer with artistic inspiration that will encourage them to embrace their own creativity.Responses and feedback from the audiences about the artwork and narrative will be gathered to promote classes to inspire mothers on their journey to motherhood.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback on my gallery show from a wide variety of ages. Many people spoke with me personally to congratulate me, wrote in my book at the gallery or posted on the creatively nesting Facebook page.
